COSMETIC TRAVEL BAG

Introducing: EVER.SMOOTH – A Heat-Activated Style Extender

INTRODUCING: EVER.SMOOTH – A HEAT-ACTIVATED STYLE EXTENDER

by Lori B.


The return of sleek styles was all over the runways this year. Models strutted down the catwalk with perfectly posh blowouts, brushed out waves, embellished braids, and swept-back upstyles. No matter the finish – straight, wavy, or curly – they all had one thing in common: they appeared smooth, shiny, and healthy! When it comes to recreating this look, it is all about the prep work that goes into the hair. To get the desired finish, our latest release – EVER.SMOOTH – is the styler you’ve been waiting for.

A product that treats as it protects, EVER.SMOOTH is formulated with long chain polymers to lock in moisture, shine, and the structure of your style. Apart from creating a beautiful, long-lasting look, EVER.SMOOTH addresses split ends and damaged cuticles with a network of protection that lasts well into your next wash. Whether your concern is frizz from environmental factors, damage from blow dryers, wands or flat irons, you’re sure to fall in love with this latest release – especially the aroma!

HOW EVER.SMOOTH WORKS
When heated, long chain polymers are activated to form a durable network of protection around the hair. Therefore creating a hydrophobic shield, which also contributes to the hold and condition of the hair. This technology is derived from skincare and allows the product to remain lightweight without compromising its effectiveness. The result is a frizz-free, silky smooth texture without the feeling of residue on the hair. Ultimately leading to a long-lasting style.

KEY INGREDIENTS
Long Chain Polymers
Heat-activated polymers self organise on the hair shaft to create a layer of protection by forming an invisible hydrophobic shield. Their effectiveness lies in the ability to lock in condition while protecting your finished style from environmental elements, such as humidity.

Wood Bark Complex
With a high level of antioxidants, Blue Cypress, White Cypress and Lemon Aspen act much like AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) to condition both the skin and hair. Gently protecting the hair, water-soluble Phyto-acids work to create resilience – further prolonging the life of your style from frizz.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT

From the ingredients selected to the packaging used, EVER.SMOOTH is in line with our sustainable practices – using Ocean Waste Plastic (OWP) bottles and containing ingredients that were sustainably harvested and support community-led change.

“I look to ingredients that not only protect, condition, and smooth the hair, but they also need to be sustainably harvested and support community-led change. Our Wood Bark Complex derived from Indigenous Australian plants do just that. Blue Cypress, White Cypress and Lemon Aspen have been specifically chosen due to their high content of antioxidants that actually behave like an Alpha Hydroxy Acid for skin and hair conditioning.”- Kevin Murphy

Due to its lightweight formula and groundbreaking innovation, EVER.SMOOTH is suitable for all hair types – soft, fine, frizzy, flat or textured. During styling, it protects against cuticle damage. Further treating and improving the hair while cutting down on drying time and extending the life of your style.

How We Are Reducing Ocean Waste Plastic

Our hope is to turn this ….

 

Back to this …

We are proud to announce that Kevin Murphy will be re-working packaging on their square-shaped bottles to be made from 100% recycled ocean waste plastic. It’s true; they will be the first ever beauty brand to implement this practice, and they are hoping to start an industry-wide conversation about the heart of the issue: safe packaging disposal. As a salon, we are committed to doing what we can to keep our planet as beautiful as the day it was created. Through their new project, they have projected to save the planet over 360 tons of new plastic each year. We are excited to be a Northern Virginia salon committed to helping with reducing ocean waste plastics through this initiative.

Every minute of every day, one garbage truck full of plastic is dumped into our oceans, which has led to over 5 trillion pieces of plastic currently littering our beautiful water and affecting its sea life. Every piece of plastic that has ever been made – ever – is still here on our planet, and currently only 9% of our world’s plastics are recycled. KEVIN.MURPHY is committed to changing these statistics and reducing plastic in the best way they know how: by cleaning up our oceans and reclaiming that plastic to package their hair products in order to create a circular supply chain. They call this responsible packaging, and we encourage you to get involved.

As part of the KEVIN.MURPHY brand commitment to The Choices We Make, their latest initiative is a reflection of their unwavering attention to our environment through everything they do. This is an urgent call-to-action to help protect our vast oceans and marine life. Through this new initiative, KEVIN.MURPHY is aiming to change the industry standard on packaging.

KILLER.WAVES

by Kyrsti Ashmall

WHO IS THIS PRODUCT FOR: Those with fine hair that requires definition and volume. This product is weightless, invisible and is as light as air. For coarser curl management, check out KILLER.CURLS.

The newest CURL on our block is here: KILLER.WAVES. This weightless wave-enhancer is your one-stop-shop to add volume, texture and definition for your locks, and will give you that effortless “mermaid hair” you’ve been dreaming of. KILLER.WAVES was created with the curl-haired girl in mind, as each and every curly and wavy head of hair is unique, and no two heads are the same.

Our new KILLER.WAVES uses the same technology that is used to thicken and lengthen eyelashes in order to make your waves feel and look fuller, weightlessly. Infused with Baobab Seed Extract, Hibiscus Flower Extract and Yerba Mate, our favourite new wave-maker moisturises and maintains your curls and waves while fighting frizz, adding strength and offering overall protection and manageability for your ‘doo.

Just as curly and wavy hair is personal, so is the combination of products needed to keep it just so. KILLER.WAVES acts as the foundation product to lift and volumise your hair, giving you the flexibility to create a routine that is as unique as your curl.

Watch our video below to learn more about KILLER.WAVES!

Ingredient Spotlight: Kakadu Plum

by Kyrsti Ashmall

Wave goodbye to dry hair with our HYDRATE regimen, which is formulated with a blend of powerful antioxidants and vitamins to nourish and moisturize your hair. Our ingredient spotlight this month is on Kakadu Plum, a super-fruit native to the Northern Australian Territory.

Rich in nutrients, Kakadu Plum contains a blend of powerful antioxidants and is known as the world’s highest source of Vitamin C. To the taste, this fruit has a sweet flavor with a pleasant bitterness at the end — but please don’t eat our HYDRATE-ME.WASH, RINSE, or MASQUE!

In addition, the Kakadu Plum found in HYDRATE-ME.WASH, RINSE and MASQUE is considered eco-friendly, as our source of this ingredient has developed innovative practices that ensure a sustainable approach in the extraction and manufacturing of this super-fruit. Our source practices green chemistry innovation, including a sustainable extraction process with friendly solvents and waste limitation. In addition they work on biotechnology processes to offer renewable sources so as not to disrupt biodiversity, and they use bi-products from the food industry to limit waste. Among many other practices, they also protect endemic species by using harvest cultures and encouraging replanting.

Together with the other ingredients in our HYDRATE regimen, Kakadu Plum helps to smooth the surface of the hair and lock in moisture. To learn more about our HYDRATE regimen, click here.
